Discrete MP is a dual input microphone preamplifier specially designed for the Edge modeling microphone.

The unit features 48V phantom power, calibration oscillator, two line outs and two inputs on combo XLR / TRS connectors.

Antelope Audio’s team of engineers lead by founder Igor Levin designed Discrete MP to perfectly match the frequency response of the Edge Modeling Microphone. The preamp is completely analog and features the same transistor schematic, which is the heart and soul of the Discrete line of interfaces.

Use Discrete MP with any system

At Antelope Audio we’ve always enjoyed coming up with technologies that unite the analog and digital aspect of audio equipment. Both Discrete MP and Edge Modeling Microphone are fully analog therefore perfectly compatible with any interface, converter and studio setup on the market.

Discrete MP will allow you to explore the full potential of Edge in both Antelope Audio-centered setups and any other audio systems. Thanks to its dedicated calibration oscillator, Discrete MP is easily adaptable to all studio setups.

Pristine sound under the hood

Discrete MP offers the signature Antelope Audio pristine audio quality. The unique discrete preamp design allowed us to modify each individual aspect of the preamp and receive full control over the performance. The total control over the coloration, clarity and character turns the Discrete MP & Edge combo in the best choice when creating a contemporary and yet affordable microphone system.

Small but stacked with FX

The Edge Strip bundle comes with a package of microphone emulations, bringing field-proven microphone legends into your setup. These microphone emulations are developed in cooperation with a range of experts and will come in native formats, designed for a lightning fast workflow.

Added to the package are preamp emulations, as well as the Stay Levin compressor model – personally designed by Antelope’s founder and CEO Igor Levin.
